SwissParam makes topologies that are compatible with CHARMM, not OPLS.  If you 
can come up with a correct topology, follow 
if needed.  Most servers provide a standalone topology, so you don't need to be 
doing any sort of .rtp hacking.  The parameters you need are in that ligand 
topology (usually, but it does depend on the server and what it gives you).
